In the end...

Something big happened today.

Nearly two years ago, the man that has since become the love of my life suggested that one day, I wouldn't need this blog. He said that while he was not quite sure what it did for me, he knew that one day, it would become unnecessary.

That day has come.

I am no longer the person I was when I started blogging four years ago. I am no longer stabbing myself with a spoon, no longer looking for fulfillment. As I'm sure readers have noticed, I was essentially done with this blog months ago, as my posts had been fewer and farther in between. For the last two years, I have been lovingly encouraged to think out loud, so now, when I have something meaningful to say, I say it. That leaves little more than anecdotes to post on this blog. When I am ready to write again, it will be in a place that has more meaning and purpose. This blog is not that place.

I am removing this blog for the right reason: because the person who matters most in my life reminded me that in the end, I'm better than this.
